Whether Valerie is sharing her heart concerning spiritual formation to leadership groups or at women’s conferences, or talking to couples about marriage or parenting, you will find her to be an authentic, engaging and motivating communicator. Common responses to Valerie’s presentations include:

  • “She’s so real and human, I could really relate…”
  • “Articulate, passionate, and spiritually insightful!”
  • “Distinctly feminine, she presents the gospel in soprano...a voice I can connect with.”
  • “Such a creative storyteller—I laughed and I cried…”
  • “She opened me up to God’s work in my life in ways I had never considered before…”
  • “I came away full of hope and convinced of God’s love for me!”

Valerie and her husband, Steve, enjoy presenting this life-changing material together—based on their book, Made to Be Loved: Enjoying Spiritual Intimacy with God and Your Spouse. Their goal is heart transformation through the practice of seeing a spouse through God’s eyes—and six other doable spiritual intimacy exercises designed especially for Christian couples. After one of their conferences a California participant reported, “Their content is relevant, deep, practical and enjoyable…as if the Bells were watching us on video-cam the last 28 years!”

This topic—and others—can be tailored specifically to your group: presented as stand-alone talks or crafted into multiple messages for longer bookings—i.e. for weekend church services, weekly classes, in a workshop setting, a one-day seminar, a multi-session weekend event, or for an entire week.
